As the new season of Top Chef gets underway on Bravo, Padma Lakshmi clearly has managed to work off all the weight she typically gains while eating her way through filming.
The 43-year-old host sported a smokin'-hot bikini body on a beach in Hawaii over the weekend during an outing with 3-year-old daughter Krishna.
Wearing a red two-piece, Lakshmi looked tone, her washboard abs gleaming in the sun as she gallivanted in the surf with her little girl.
She also wore sunglasses, a gold necklace and wore her hair pulled back in a ponytail.
No doubt, the Indian-American cookbook author was motivated to burn all those calories she racked up eating creole food and other fabulous dishes on Top Chef: New Orleans, which premiered last Wednesday.
